Cryptographers have moved closer to their goal of eavesdropping on cellphone conversations after cracking the secret code used to prevent the interception of radio signals as they travel between handsets and mobile operators' base stations.

Fodder for conspiracy theorists?

From reading the article, it certainly seems possible. But you will have to jump a few hoops to actually get some practicle results. Note that figuring out the band hopping sequence is only part of the problem. You still have to decode the encrypted conversation and be close to the cell phone to record it.

Hopefully cellphone manufacturers will keep one step ahead of personal computing power. ;)
